Government kills parakeets

Posted on the 29th September 2014

Animal Aid campaigns for all wildlife and, for several years, we have worked alongside local campaigners to try to stop the government ‘cull’ of a tiny number of monk parakeets living in the wild around London and Hertfordshire.

Despite there being so few monk parakeets, and no evidence that they cause agricultural damage or have nested on pylons, the government has spent £259,000 killing some and ‘rehousing’ others.

Now, the Daily Mail has exposed the cost of killing these wonderful birds in a recent article. Please read and share it.
